We love to educate

Dr Michael Maslin

Dr Michael Maslin

International Clinical Trainer, Interacoustics Academy.
In 2007 Michael returned to The University of Manchester to undertake a PhD in plasticity of the human binaural auditory system. After completing his studies he remained on the academic staff there as a teaching focused lecturer in audiology before carrying out a 3-year post-doctoral research programme which built directly on the underpinning work carried out during his PhD. Since 2015 Michael has worked for the Interacoustics Academy as an international clinical trainer.
Mr Darren Whelan

Mr Darren Whelan

International Clinical Trainer, Interacoustics Academy.
Mr Whelan qualified as an Audiologist earning his undergraduate honours degree in Audiology from the University of Leeds in the UK. He has Master’s degree with Distinction, in Health Science, Neurophysiology and Clinical research. He has held several senior clinical positions in the NHS. Before joining Interacoustics Academy as an International Clinical Trainer, he held a clinical and research scientist role, where as part of a team of surgeons and audiologists, he lead on diagnostic audiology, covering investigations of patients with auditory and vestibular pathology, and managing a portfolio of research studies.
Mr John Ellison

Mr John Ellison

International Clinical Trainer, Interacoustics Academy.
Mr Ellison is educated in Audiology, Hearing Science and Acoustics. Over the last 15 years he has worked at Boys Town National Research Hospital and Starkey Hearing Technologies. He has contributed to an extensive body of research including predictive diagnostic methods involving middle-ear and cochlear responses. John has also worked to find methods of improving speech intelligibility in challenging listening environments via multi-microphone and noise reduction technologies. He recently joined the Interacoustics Academy as Clinical Trainer for the US.
Leigh Martin

Mr Leigh Martin

Interacoustics Academy Manager.
Clinically Leigh has worked in the National Health Service and in the private sector in the UK specializing in both paediatric audiology and adult diagnostics. He has also sat on the board of directors for the British Academy of Audiology. For the last four years Leigh has been working in the Interacoustics Academy firstly as an international clinical trainer, then as head of clinical training Asia and now as the Manager of the Academy.
